Wasn't this forum going to be updated?

Some time ago I received an invitation to join a 'new' version of this forum, and responded with alacrity since I find this one incredibly difficult to use. No one responded to my response which I guess means I failed some test, but no matter what: that was many months ago.

Has the 'update' died on the vine?
I did the same, but we only have ourselves to blame for the delay. Responding with "alacrity" undoubtedly confused the transition team.
Same here. I always thought their announcement was made more to quiet discontent with the site than because there was a serious move afoot to update the site.
Please don't ask to update this forum the amateur crew of Audiogon. They will screw it up for very long time. As-Is till professionals probably from outside of audiogon can take care of that.
"If it is not broken why fix it?" as the saying goes. This current set up has a simple and clean layout and easy to navigate.

Why disparage the Audiogon staff?
Redglobe - a while back there were people asking for new features, like the ability to edit your posts in order to make corrections. The forum works well, but there are features that could be added. During those discussions, Audiogon indicated that they were starting a new development. The concern is that a re-write might disrupt the "simple and clear layout and easy to use navigation". That concern is based on the re-write of the main selling system, which had a lot of growing pains and which many still have issues with.
Didn't the site want us to use a "hub" or something instead of the forums. Anytime I see a push like that it usually means a new manner of introducing advertising. Don't know if it ever functioned or still does?
They should just switch to vBulletin forum software. Much better than this ancient forum software.
Mechans - The Hub is still there - just go to main Audiogon page and hit Blog. It looks nice, but there is almost no content there. Personally, I think from the start it was a waste of their time to develop it.

My guess is that they either do not have the code for this forum or that was written in such a way that is almost impossible to update, probably with outdated tools.

Personally, I would like to see the ability to quote other posts and the ability to edit my posts. But, those are hardly crucial.

I would let the site stay the way it is. I really doubt that the current format stops people from posting and a fancier forum probably will not draw more users. Plus, any real change will probably require more advertising. The transition period on the selling site was painful. I see no reason to go through that here.
